BAKING PROJECT IN MONT CLARE We will be baking nut rolls for Thanksgiving and Christmas on Saturday, November 8th, and again on Nov 15, or until orders are filled. We need everyone’s help to make this project a success. If you are unable to help with the baking, please consider making a donation for the cost of supplies we need to purchase. STEWARDSHIPAPPEAL By now, you should have received your Annual Stewardship Appeal information. For Saint Michael’s, our goal has been increased to $8,000. Please be as generous as possible. If you decide to donate to the Appeal to help us meet our goal, please do not reduce your other giving to the parish by that amount. Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated in helping our Eparchy run smoothly and meet its obligations and charitable goals. If you have not received your packet for this year’s appeal, please email or call Fr. Jim to let him know. THE CHRISTMAS FAST or ST PHILIP’S FAST or FILIPOVKA begins at sundown on November 14th, the feast of St. Philip. This forty day period of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving is in preparation for the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord. It ends after Vespers on Christmas Eve. Traditionally, no meat or dairy would be eaten during this time. Please try, at least, to increase your observance of some type of extra penance during this period, e.g., by avoiding meat on another day, such as Wednesday, in addition to the Fridays you already keep meat free. Observance of this Fast is voluntary. FATHER JIM WILL BE AWAY THIS WEEK from Thursday, November 13th until Tuesday, November 18th. If there is an emergency and you are in need of a priest, please call Fr. Nick at St. John’s in Pottstown at 610.326.1877.
